The grace of God

grace

 “Grace”,  the doctrine of the grace of Gods the most important concept in the Bible, Christianity, and the world. It is most clearly expressed in the promises of God revealed in Scripture and embodied in Jesus Christ. it is  very center and core of the  Bible. Grace is  the unmerited favor of God towards us . Grace is getting what you don’t deserve, and not getting what you do deserve. Grace is not being proud, self sufficient but rather having a humble opinion  of one self.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. … For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ  John 1:14, 17 

Ephesians 2:8-9 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:

But we believe that we are saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, in the same way as they also are  Acts 15:11

Romans 6:14 – For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 11:6 – And if by grace, then [is it] no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if [it be] of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

James 4:6 – But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Romans 5:8 – But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Hebrews 4:16 – Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

John 1:16 – And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

Romans 3:20-24 – Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin.  

Titus 2:11-14 – For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,    

Romans 3:24 – Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

2 Timothy 2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus, in order that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them  Ephesians 2:1-10 

He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, which He lavished upon us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fulness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ should be to the praise of His glory  Ephesians 1:5-12 

But Thou art a God of forgiveness, Gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger, and abounding in loving kindness;    Nehemiah 9:17 

And when he wanted to go across to Achaia, the brethren encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him; and when he had arrived, he helped greatly those who had believed through grace (Acts 18:27).

… which has come to you, just as in all the world also it is constantly bearing fruit and increasing, even as it has been doing in you also since the day you heard of it and understood the grace of God in truth (Colossians 1:6).

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.  2 Peter 3:18 

Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need Hebrews 4:16

“God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble” James 4:6; cf. 1 Peter 5:5

Faith is necessary to please God. Hebrews 11:6  , “And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” 

Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus,I the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross,  scorning its shame,  and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
We respond to His grace by faith and appropriate what has already been accomplished.
.
Faith is defined as being a positive response to what God has already provided by grace. Faith appropriates what God has already provided. God’s grace has provided not only for salvation but also for every need of your life. Jesus has saved, healed, delivered, or prospered many a person in the last 2,000 years. Jesus said that not everybody will be saved (Matt. 7:13), yet Scripture says it is the will of God that none should perish (2 Pet. 3:9). God has provided salvation, healing, financial provision, and everything else we need, but if we don’t respond in faith to what has been provided by grace, we won’t receive. God’s will is for everyone to be healed. Acts 10:38 says that Jesus went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, and it calls what He did “good.” And 1 Peter 2:24 tells us that we were healed by His stripes, yet most of us still do not receive His healing into our lives.
.

Faith in God is  a choice. Our faith in God is the very thing that holds us steady and keeps us safe from the terrifying storms of life. It’s the intrinsic base of our reliance and confidence in God. Faith is central to Christianity, and faith is a relationship term. We must have faith in Jesus Christ. This means that we believe that he is all he says he is, and he will do what he has promised. It means that we trust him. It is Christ in us who makes all things possible, even our deliverance from death. When we realize that God has all power to do anything he wants, and that he always uses it for the good of humanity, then we can have absolute confidence that we are in good hands. He has both the ability and the purpose of working all things (including even our rebellion, hatred and betrayal against him and one another) toward our salvation. He is completely trustworthy—worthy of our trust. When we are in the midst of trials, sickness, suffering and even dying, we can be confident that God is still with us, that he cares for us, that he has everything under control. It may not look like it, and we certainly do not feel in control, but we can be confident that God isn’t caught off guard. He can and does redeem any situation, any misfortune, for our good.  We need never doubt God’s love for us. Grace without your positive response of faith won’t save you, and faith that isn’t a response to God’s grace will bring you into condemnation. But put your faith in what God has already done for you, and you have the victory that overcomes the world (1 John 5:4).

.

In Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ…. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross…. You are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household.  Ephesians 2:13-19 

.

Biblical Faith concerns:

  1. Things that are promised for the future,
  2. Things that are present that are invisible.
God loved us even when we were his enemies; he will be faithful in all circumstances.
The resurrection of Jesus shows that God has the power to save us even from death.
When we trust God, we obey him, knowing that his commands are for our good.
No one has perfect faith; we grow in faith through life experiences.
Doubts and questions can lead us to trust Christ even with the unknown.
 .
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
 .
Luke 18:8  Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
 .

 

 

Trust in the Lord

Psalms 4:5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

Psalms 7:1 O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

Psalms 9:10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Psalms 11:1 In the LORD put I my trust: How say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

Psalms 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

Psalms 20:7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

grace (2)

 

Matthew 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.    “Did God actually say . . .?”   Jews, Messianic Jews, Dispensationalists, others rely on the Christians ignorance of the Bible to promote their lies.  If someone is ignorant of God’s Word, then they will reflect that ignorance in their beliefs, their speech, their purpose in life, their motivations and in all sorts of spiritual illnesses. They could join atheists in attempting to live in the world as it is. Ignorance of God and His laws quite often quickly results in sin.   The ancient Israelites. God also accused them of ignorance in Jeremiah 4:22. Israel wasn’t always ignorant as a nation, but as generation after generation strayed farther and farther from God, they forgot about God’s laws. They gave up the knowledge of God and His ways for the world and its supposed privileges. Apostle Paul admits that he had been ignorant in 1 Timothy 1:13. Some of the things he did in this ignorance were awful. He had killed faithful followers of Jesus, persecuted the Church and beaten the people called by the very God he was trying to worship.

Hosea 4:6,  God mourns, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

There are many denominations even within Christianity, all of which claim to have the correct beliefs.Though we have more access to the Bible than any generation before us, most Christians still have never read it all.  Most Christians are ignorant of the bible cause they do not read it even 5 minutes a day. God is  calling us to  understand the Bible,.He is calling us to seek to understand Him and His ways more and more, through reading and studying Scripture, looking into what is the truth.Can a person even properly be called a believer if there is this much ignorance about what the content of that belief is supposed to be? A person is much more likely to compromise if they are ignorant of important information about their faith. Christians, first and foremost, need to learn the foundational truths about their faith. This includes a basic knowledge of the contents of the Bible. The ‘spiritual’ ignorance about faith was not limited to Christians. Christians are rightly concerned about the secular worldview’s rejection of biblical Christianity, we ought to give some urgent attention firstly to our own –biblical illiteracy. Recovery starts at home.

We must get deadly serious about the problem of biblical illiteracy, or face Hell next. Since most people do not truly cry out to God for understanding, and because they do not really study His inspired word! You must not remain ignorant of what the Bible actually says! Your very life truly depends upon it.  Offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God — which is your spiritual worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.    Knowledge is what you know; it’s what you have in your head. Understanding is the deeper level of seeing how the knowledge fits together and how it can be used. Spiritual understanding means understanding the things of God. Wisdom is the ability to make sound judgments; to take that knowledge and understanding and apply it.Gain Biblical knowledge then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing, and perfect will.

Hosea 4:6 God says through Hosea, “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me.” (Romans 12:1-2)

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. (Phil. 4:8)   Let’s make you the  “ignorant Christian ” a thing of the past.

Keep your prayers Biblical

6

One of the most effective ways of praying is to use  a Bible verse to pray and claim God’s promises for you.  You should pray Scripture because God’s people in the OT and NT did, Jesus did. You should pray Scripture because it helps you pray confidently. You should pray Scripture because it keeps your prayers Biblical .

.

Contrary to what many believe, the Bible doesn’t encourage long prayers. Instead, the effectiveness of one’s prayers is emphasized. An effective prayer life indicates we are praying for the things that we know God wants us to pray for.  Let His Word dwell richly within us –  meditate on the Word day and night so that we will be careful to live accordingly and thereby have prosperity and success.   His Word will live on forever– even though everything in our own earthly lives will eventually perish.  Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Proverbs 30:5

.

Confess  God’s words. promises in prayer.

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4

Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.  Jeremiah 33:3

“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.” John 15:7–8,
.
Psalms 3: 1    LORD, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. 2    Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah. 3    But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head. 4    I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill. Selah.5    I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.  6    I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about. 7    Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: for thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. 8    Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people.

Jonah 2: 2    And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice. 3    For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me. 4    Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple. 5    The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6    I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God. 7    When my soul fainted within me I remembered the LORD: and my prayer came in unto thee, into thine holy temple. 8    They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy. 9    But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.

WHY JESUS DOES NOT ANSWER ALL OF OUR PRAYERS

jesus (1)

 

.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I Peter 5:7

.

The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.  Nahum 1:7 

.

Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.  Psalm 55:22 

.

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26    Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27    Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28    And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29    And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30    Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31    Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32    (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33    But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.    Matthew 6:25
.

Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. John 9:31

.

The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. Psalm 34:15

.

The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous. Proverbs  15:29

.

If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: 19    But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. 20    Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.  Psalm 66:18
.

He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.  Psalm 145:19

.

   And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: 15    And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.   1 John 5: 14-15 

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.  1 Peter 4:7

.

  O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. 9    O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. 10    The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing. 11    Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.12    What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? 13    Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. 14    Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15    The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.  Psalm 34  :8
.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. James 1:5-8
 .
7    Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:  8    For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.  9    Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10    Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11    If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?   Matthew 7:7
 .
Will He really answer when we call?  
 .
  They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. 24    And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.    Isaiah 65:23
 .
God has certain conditions that must be met before our prayers can be answered. One of the first, is we feel our need of help from Him. Isaiah 44:3 says, “I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground.” The heart must be open to the Spirit’s influence, or God’s blessing cannot be received. One cannot pour water into a cup that is already full.
 .
One of the reasons we feel our prayers are not being answered, is because we stop praying.
 .
1 Thessalonians 5:17 says it best, “pray without ceasing.”
 .
Philippians 4:6, “In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
 .
For God to give us what we ask for, we must ask “according to His will.” Faith cannot take the place of “asking according to God’s will.”
 .
1 John 5:14, “…if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”
 .
If you do not ask according to God’s will, it is not real faith in God. If God’s answer is “No” we still must be willing to wait patiently, and trust God to answer in his own way and in His timing.
 .
  “When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures” (James 4:3).
 .
If we’re simply asking God for stuff—as if he were some kind of Santa Claus —we  need to check our motives. Prayer is about so much more than simply getting stuff, anyway. It’s about giving God our adoration and thanking him for his goodness.
 .
  Unconfessed sin separates us from God so that he won’t even hear our prayers:
 .
“Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities [sins] have separated you from God; your sins have hidden his face from you so that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:1-2). 
 .
Have I made idols,  anything more important than God?    Some people had “set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of me at all?” (Ezekiel 14:3).
 .
Idols aren’t always false images, replacement for God. Anything that becomes more important than God—whether it’s money, job, popularity, grades or success—is an idol.
 .
Jesus said, “If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given to you” (John 15:7). Are you spending enough time reading your Bible? Finding out God’s will and not your own.
 .
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: Ephesians 4:31
 .
Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22
 .
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 1 Timothy 4:1
 .
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10
 .
Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Proverbs 23:4
 .
And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. 2 Timothy 4:18
 .
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. Psalms 34:19
.

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. 1 Peter 3:7 

.

  Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed. 10    For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. 11    For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.   Psalm 84:9

Too often, we want things that will ultimately be bad for us. And we like to use God to get what we want, the way we want, when we want, in our own time, our own ways. God not giving us what we ask for what we do not need, such as  asking for a Ferrari, marriage, more money, a new house or for our favorite team to win the big game.

.

THE ANSWER  OFTEN IS YES, NO OR IS “WAIT“.  THERE IS VALUE IN WAITING. THERE ARE MANY LESSONS TO  BE TAUGHT IN OUR PERIODS OF WAITING. THERE ARE SO MANY EXAMPLES IN THE BIBLE, OF THOSE WHO HAD TO WAIT, SOMETIMES FOR A VERY LONG PERIOD OF TIME, BEFORE THEY SAW GOD’S PROMISES FULFILLED AND THEIR PRAYERS ANSWERED. GOD IS NEVER LATE OR EARLY…HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT ON TIME…

.

All Prayers should end with “Not my will, Lord, but Your will.” (Luke 22:42).

.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5,6.

.

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2    Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3    But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: 4    That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. 5    And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7    But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.  Matthew 6: 1  
.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14    For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15    But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6: 12
.

And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.  Matthew 21:  13

 .
Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
 .
Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
 .
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.  Matthew 18:20
 .
Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 1 Corinthians 7:5
 .
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
 .
Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
